Please list your favourite programming languages.

Haskell, Scala, Clojure, Erlang, Smalltalk

How did you get interested in functional programming?

I was reading "The Pragmatic Programmer" while working as a Smalltalk developer. The authors challenged me to learn a language that is way different from what I've done before. So I bought their Erlang book. While reading up on Erlang I also discovered Clojure, Haskell and a bunch of other languages.

Are you currently using functional programming in the workplace, or are you just looking at it informally?

I'm using Scala at work


Functional programming enthusiast, slowly gaining more insight. I am playing with Haskell when I can, but professionally I have used Scala, Erlang, Smalltalk as well as a few of the mainstream languages.
